ORACLE JAM 2
Oracle "Jam 2" MP3
Here's the ultimate of our Dokken/Celtic Frost crossovers. I believe Dave is on guitar and I'm on drums for this jam. It's such a strange combination of elements, I almost wish we'd been able to take it somewhere. What does happen when you mix glam and sludgy doom?
Probably nothing. I'm sure there's a reason we never got together again after this!
The riff was definitely Dave's. I always enjoyed playing it and could probably still bust it out if I wanted to.
I'm not positive that I'm playing the drums but it does sound like me. This would've been like my third or fourth time ever behind a kit. My usual 'drum set' in those days consisted of the air and a pair of drum sticks, sunglasses and leather gloves optional. No, really. I'd sit on the corner of my waterbed & blast Venom's 20 minute epic "At War With Satan" and air drum along as best I could.
The funny thing about playing in Dave's basement was the lack of a stand for the crash cymbal. So we improvised and hung it from the ceiling with some rope. Nice idea until it started swinging wildly every time you hit it.
